They Unlike Me! (Show #118)

Sally Field aside,  it’s nice to be liked, and it’s not nice to be “unliked.”  You get to hear just how geeky we get about social media, and how we deal with flaming or annoying posts while at the same time wondering how we might have accidentally created an annoying post ourselves.  (Are we paranoid or what? Typical!) Personally, I like to quote Bette Midler: “If they can’t take a joke, f*ck ’em.”

Please comment and give us how you deal with this issue.  And check this out: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=tuxedo%20cats

Mind Over Medicine (Show #104)

The human body is Audaciously Amazing! Especially in its ability to heal itself.  How does the mind work to heal the body?  How does it interfere?  How powerful  is belief?  You have probably heard of the placebo effect; what about the nocebo effect?  How much power do we have over our own health and wellness?  Listen in as we discuss the possibilities.

UNFRIENDLIES (Show #88)

In which we discuss the concepts expressed in Season 6, Episode 1 of Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, “Are We All Bigots?” The premise is that people can be classified into 4 quadrants Friend/Foe and Competent/Incompetent, where “competent” means that the person can enact their will upon you, and why a powerful competent woman scares the crap out of everyone. There is some strong language in this episode (More than usual? Not sure.)

Show #75: Age, Gender, and the Entrepreneur

This episode was sparked by a recent Freelance academy podcast (Why So Many Women Struggle in Business).  We start discussing how women can be more effective in business, and diverge into  harassment in the workplace, F-to-M transitions, and how middle-aged (and older) women get overlooked. We’re not just sitting around knitting all the time. And we talk about collaboration and the difference in feedback you get from a full-time employee position and working for yourself.
